Abstract:The Concept of government access policies on polytechnic education in Ghana involves government use of several regulating mechanisms to control the number of students enrolled in all the polytechnics. These mechanisms include restrictive admission policies, structural reform both at the system level and within different sectors, and selection and quotas in the various polytechnics in the country. The Higher National Diploma programme is a three-year Diploma awarding programme which is designed to equip graduates work in middle level manpower positions in Ghana; it is also practical-oriented diploma programme which provides technical knowledge to graduates. Although the Cape Coast Polytechnic conducts its own admission, most of the criteria used in determining successful applicants to the various Higher National Diploma programmes are contained in government policy documents which spell out the various entry criteria. Ghana continue to witness increasing demand for polytechnic education and an important step to address this development is to identify the factors that contribute to the increasing demand for polytechnic education and the introduction of alternative solution to providing quality education to all citizens of Ghana as contained in the constitution of the country
